    Wow, that’s so cool and something I’ve never seen before!

    I love it! My mom would say those bikeracks had been “bobbed”. (Tea cozies etc. were named Bob in our household.) and check this out – my friend Anna in NYC took it:

    Now I have seen everything… The racks did look like they were just a little bit chilly there in the shade.

    I would not have believed it without the photo. Love to meet the person who came up with such a funky idea!

      How did I miss that site? I like her–and she gardens!

    cool! this may have been done by a group of rogue knitters in Philly that leave random objects covered with their work.

      Wayne, I’m seeing all kinds of stuff online about this now. Who knew? I love it.

    Cool! I saw a “tree cozy” a couple of weeks ago on Rittenhouse square–perhaps the same guerilla knitters that did these bike racks!

      I wonder…but I know I’d like to see some more guerilla knitting!
